Prepare for Your Career and Volunteer
When you volunteer you are giving something back to your community by lending a helping hand to people and organizations. What you may not realize is that volunteering also benefits you as an individual. There are many good reasons to get involved in the community, including learning something about yourself. Lifespan offers volunteer opportunities for both teens and adults.
If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, Lifespan is the place to visit. Youth are especially encouraged to volunteer during high school and college. Volunteering will earn you references that can help with your job search, and college application process. The skills you gain during an internship will also be beneficial in your future career.
